OHP has identified the driver of the van that struck and killed Curtis Wayne Johnson, 34, of Lancaster, Texas on November 20, 2018 south of McAlester. Johnson was walking south on a service road when he was hit by a van, also traveling south. The driver of the van fled the scene. Johnson later died at a local hospital.
